's virginia where both men targeted the same group of voters. let's walk over to cnn's naon political correspondent jim acosta who's been out on the campaign trail wahingt' going . another dramatic da. virginia, virginia, virginia. pretty important place. >> that's right. a rare visit to washington for me. but it's good to be home, wolf. all politics is local. so it was no surprise to hear both candidates hit on national security themes today in their speeches in virginia. but the state is much bigger than that. it's really a republican firewall for mitt romney. in battleground virginia, both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery before a group of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the presiden
are going up. in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would be to widen the margin they would get. mccain carried them by over 30 points. so did romney. it is basically about the same margin as mccain got in 2008. we see this burgeoning white college graduate group that obama lost by about 11. in 2008. the is basically about even. it makes it difficult for romney to put together a coalition that could put this. colorado has been closed. obama looks like he has a three or four. lead. -- thre or four point lead. it does not appear that romney is able to turn that demographic in his favor. he is not doing much better according to the polls i have seen. he has made some progress outside the margin. he is not making nearly enough progress to take the state. if you break it down to a graphically comment the denver metro area is about half of the state. the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it can shift is the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of the not as far as he did in 2008. this is a little cut off here. you can see an incredible increase

three states in the new south, north carolina, virginia and florida. the six days in the midwest rust belt area are much more heavily white than these other swing states. they are much more slowly changing than the states, for example, in the new south which have a much higher level of minority voters and are changing rapidly. and, of course, the states in the southwest with a minority population particularly among hispanics is shooting up very rapidly and the states have a much more higher proportion of minority voters that are favorable to barack obama. with that in mind let's look at some of the particular swing states that are in play at this point. maybe more so than any other state, ohio seems to be the fulcrum of this election, that it's a state that is very accessible to mitt romney, a state of that obama could hold him and he holds all six of the states in the rust belt midwest area combined with only four electoral states short of victory. so critical for the romney strategy to hold a state of ohio. that's not happening at this point. at this point obama is probably up to ab
points. virginia, obama is up 5 points. florida, obama is up 5 points. mitt romney is no longer in polling, beating obama on trust to handle the economy. >> which is his campaign in one sentence. those three states have one thing in common -- they have all three republican governors. they're bragging, rightfully so, they got their economies up and running. if you add scott walker to that lead, you have the attention to disconnect. with the interest of the romney campaign. >> jon, what's going on behind the scenes here? >> one thing that happened during the democratic convention the romney campaign essentially went dark. you have seen an absolutely bombardment particularly in ohio and in florida, from the obama campaign, hammering romney on especially in ohio, on the auto bailout. there was a romney adviser told me that famous headline that romney himself did not write, "let detroit go bankrupt." could be the headline that cost him the election. the romney campaign has more money. >> because, the auto motive companies went bankrupt. the argument on the bailout is of law. >> becau
in the midwest area, ohio, michigan, and ohio, states in the southwest, colorado, new mexico and nevada. virginia and florida in the south. all of the states are pretty different. the six states in the midwest are much more heavy and have a slow level of demographic change and they are more bechler changing slowly. that is favorable in showing preference for barack obama could with that in mind, let's look at some of the particular swing states that are in play. more than any other state, perhaps ohio is one of the pogroms. a state that was believed to be for mitt romney, but if obama holds all six electoral votes, he is only four electoral votes short of victory. critical romney strategy in the state of ohio. that is not happening at this point. at this point, some of the data on the bottom, you see that the were served with the white working class and he lost by 10 points in 2008. his hope was that he could expend that much a part of it. that is really what romney strategy is. romney is not anywhere close to driving up that margin. he is doing no better at all for white college graduates. that
. these have been tough times. >> today governor romney heads to the swing state of virginia, hold a rally in virginia beach in little more than an hour. later in the day, he'll attend a nascar race in richmond. >>> other front page political headlines for you, the battle over medical marijuana has surfaced on the campaign trail. paul ryan told a colorado springs radio stationing the federal government should not interfere with states that have legalized the drug for medicinal purposes. the congressman says he does not personal willly agree with the but it should be left up to the states. vice president biden heads to ohio where he will hold rallies in zanesville and athens. >>> west coast headlines are next. the unusual change in bee population. >>> plus, deal making for some malibu luxury homes. >>> in office politics, which party supports the war on terror more. keep it here on "weekends with alex xrwitt." there are projects. and there are game-changers. those ideas that start with us rolling up our sleeves... ...and end with a new favorite room in the house. and when we can save even m
to northern virginia etc. the could be true even if pennsylvania is overwhelmingly democratic because of the more friendly terrain under the circumstances. >> basically what's happened is when i first started coming into politics in the 80's it's always decided by the monsters of the midway. the midwest and the swing states are preponderant the whitewater demographically and heavily blue-collar. now it's emerged in the last eight years to second pathway available to the democrats and previously heavily read state devotee of the set so the same forces that obama himself and bodies, the well-educated and diverse and the kind of southeast conference north carolina, virginia and florida and southwest conference of nevada, colorado and mexico with arizona and georgia kind of beat behind each case. and in the long run, you know, is striking how obama is holding up in the western state into long run though, places like this where the democrats hold the coalition of minorities and college whites and social liberal seem to be more of the future of the party also, again, this election i think o
events in virginia but they can't wait for just the debates. i think conservatives want to see not just big events in terms of big ideas but big events that grab the nation's attention. the romney campaign is frustrated because they say all the press asks them about is process but that's par for the course and true in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the debates. >> mark, you know why they focus on process, because there's not substance to -- you know, it's funny, in 1988 facing a more hostile press george h.w. bush never once whined about process. you know why? because james baker told the press what they were going to be following. and he told the candidate what he was going to be doing. and every week the candidate did it. the message was unbelievable. but again, going on with charles krauthammer, for six months mitt has been matching obama small ball for sma
, north carolina, virginia new hampshire ohio, wisconsin, iowa, colorado, nevada. those 11 -- excuse me, those nine states total 110 electoral votes up for grabs. up here has got the electoral countdown based on the red and blue. doesn't have the yellow states in it. so obama right now ahead 237 electoral votes to romney's 191. of course, you need 270 to be able to clinch a nomination. so i want to share with you polls that were released this past week. some today. some over the past few days. it gives you an indication of how the electoral map changes when the polls are added. so virginia, so if i'm going to put virginia in romney's camp because today marketing came out with a poll that says romney beats obama today 49% to 44%. 13 electoral votes to romney's total. ohio, that goes to obama. same polling. gravis marketing. obama, 43. that adds 18 electoral votes to obama's column. north carolina, north carolina we're going to get to obama. 1 point romney. that was yesterday. yesterday was also florida.
the battleground scoreboard. first to virginia where a new york times/cbs/quinnipiac poll finds president obama with a four-point lead over mitt romney. about the same there, 50/46. in wisconsin, same poll shows the president leading by six, 51/45. that's important given paul ryan is on the ticket. and in colorado, obama with a small lead. always tricky now that state. why is colorado tricky? 47/48. that close. >>> welcome back to "hardball." the floodgates have opened. criticism of the romney campaign by his fellow republicans is growing louder and fiercer since romney's caught-on-tape comments on that 47% came to light monday. here was republican strategist mark mckinnon this morning. >> what we're seeing is an increasing problem of him being able to connect with voters in a sense that he understands and shares their values and concerns. and that gap's widening. >> uber conservative charles krautheimer, who has defended romney in the past, ripped into his comments last night on fox. let's take a look. >> he said these are people who consider themselves victims. now, that's not a very smart th
. a romney supporter ecoed that same nonsense. >> jennifer: he is going to carry virginia in a landslide. okay. not everybody right-winger is on board with that crazy train. chris wallace became the unlikely voice of reason today on mike gallagher's conservative talk radio show. >> i think romney -- i don't know that it is any great headline is in trouble. >> where do you get that from? what do you mean romney is in trouble? because of this poll manipulation crap -- >> this poll stuff is the -- the criticism of the polls is craziness. they are telling a story, and the story at this point is that romney is losing. >> jennifer: fox new's own poll agrees that the president is ahead. it found that the president was up by five points and that's roughly the same as what those other totally biased polls found, those polls from the socialist mouthpiece bloomberg news. but just watch fox and friends try to squirm out of that up with. >> the problem is they are skewed. >> our signs isn't skewed -- >> though polls -- the -- they are overpolling democrats. >> jennifer: okay. th
them a shot at florida. they're also trailing in virginia and also trailing in huo and a lot of folks say to win 1600 pennsylvania avenue, you have to win two of those three states so they have their work cut out for them. >> i want to remind our viewers at home when paul ryan begins to speak there in overrulrlando, w bring it to you live. thank you. appreciate your time. >>> president obama using his weekly radio and web address to blast congress for adjourning with a lot of work still on the table. the house gaveled out its last vote thursday afternoon, its shortest question in 50 years. >> when they skipped town they left a bunch of proposals on the table, actions that will create middle class jobs and strengthen security. these ideas have been around for months. the american people want to see them passed. apparently some members of congress are more worried about their jobs and paychecks this season than they are about yours. >> let's bring ingest ca taylor. ana marie cox, correspondent for "the guardian" and jonathan, opinion writer for the "washington post." >> hi, craig. >> be

, three in a row in october. he was campaigning yesterday, though, we have pictures of him in virginia beach, virginia. you know, romney has said he would work to repeal obamacare if elected president. well, now we are learning that there are parts of obamacare maybe he wouldn't take to the chopping block and he apear -- appeared in a pre-taped interview on nbc and explained what he would keepful here he is. >> i am not getting rid of all of health care reform, of course. there are a number of things that i like that i am going to put in place. one is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage and to make sure that the marketplace has policies that allow the family up to whatever age they might like. >> reporter: paul ryan, the runningmate was campaigning in spartan, nevada ofriday, where he appeared in a truck plant. he appeared in a pre-taped interview this morning and he was hit with the charm that the romney/rye apticket doesn't have very much foreign policy experience, especially in afghanistan, which was not mentioned in romney's acceptance said when yo
battleground states. the president has a five-point lead over romney in virginia and florida. and in ohio, his lead is up to seven points. >> and of course, john heilmann, these are all states that george w. bush won in 2004. virginia's a little wider than we could have expected. florida, a five-point lead in such a conservative state. this late in the game with few undecided voters is really telling. but the ohio number, again, continues to be -- >> devastating. >> -- the dagger in the romney campaign's heart if they can't -- if they can't pull that out and make that a closer race. seven points in ohio is devastating. the right track/wrong tracks in these states, all much better than they are in the rest of america. in ohio, the right track, 45% of ohio voters think that the country's headed in the right direction. >> look at those three numbers up there. 49, 49, 50, those are all, you know, the obvious point to make. you know, the president -- at 50 in ohio, those numbers are all approaching, you know, the numbers that you need to win those states. >> yep. >> and they're places the president
york city and then a set of whirlwind stops through ohio, florida, virginia before hitting milwaukee at the end of the week. the first time he's going to wisconsin this election cycle. joining me now, dough sdchlt ominico. he enjoys the occasion al beer, but milwaukee, really? >> maybe, maybe not. it's not just for the beer. milwaukee is an area that president obama has to run up the score to win. with picking paul ryan, it really shouldn't be all that surprising that wisconsin would be close. we've had it in the toss up column the entire time. it was the closest state of the 2004 presidential election just 0.38 percentage points separated john kerry and george w. bush. >> but then 14 points separated president obama and john mccain four years later. what's happened? >> the same 2008. and it looks a whole lot more like 2004. it could be a base election, slightly lower turnout than 2008. we've seen undecided voters say maybe they won't go to the polls. >> the stops next would he be also speaking volumes about money. anytime either one of them goes to this morning or california, it's a
in florida. 7 points in ohio, and 7 points in virginia. just to be clear, if mitt romney does not sweep almost all of those states he might have to go back to bain capital, if they'll take them. and mitt romney is taking any opportunity to lash out the president says that could be used as an attack line, including these innocuous remarks from mr. obama on thursday. >> obama: you can't change washington from the inside. you can only change it from the outside. something that i would like to concentrate on in my second term is being in a much more constant conversation with the american people so they can put pressure on congress to help move some of these issues forward. >> eliot: within hours romney tried to use that comment to take a jab at a florida rally. >> romney: the president of the united states said he can't change washington from the inside. isn't that amazing. no wonder why he has had such a hard time over the years. >> eliot: perhaps romney forgot he made an identical comment in 2008. >> i don't think you change washington from the inside. i think you change it from the outs
in virginia, mitt romney the first mormon to win a naum nax assured the crowd he'd keep god as part of his message. >> i will not take god out of the name of the platform. i will not take god off our coins, and i will not take god out of my heart. >> romney's religion sparked a dpood deal of interest among americans. according to google searches about romney's faith are trending higher than ever, surpassing any topics democrats used to attack him, that includes bain, tax returns and doggone roof. i think this interest is -- says a number of things. first of all, i think it sort of skew we aers the idea problem g propagated that religious doesn't matter anymore. i think clearly people still care greatly and deeply about the faith of their political candidates. so they're searching this, and i think that curiosity is actually a good thing. i think the reason you're not seeing this play out on sort of a national conversation the way some expected it to is twofold. one, it doesn't cement an existing narrative that's existed about romney the way that religion has been used in the past to do tha
